The Colorado Forest Atlas is a website that serves as a one-stop shop for the Colorado State Forest Service, the public and partners to access statewide geospatial data and information related to forestry and natural resources. Applications in the Colorado Forest Atlas can be used as decision support tools for developing new projects, writing forestry plans, assessing wildfire risk to communities, evaluating forest conditions, and more. These applications will be updated on a regular basis using the best available science and data.

Currently, the Colorado Forest Atlas hosts two applications – the Wildfire Risk Viewer (Public Viewer) and the Risk Reduction Planner (Professional Viewer). These applications were previously hosted on the Colorado Wildfire Risk Assessment Portal (CO-WRAP) website but have been updated with new designs and tools. The data and information in these apps is derived from the 2017 Colorado Wildfire Risk Assessment.

Wildfire Risk Viewer

  • Provides a simple-to-use tool that allows users to explore wildfire risk
  • Quickly generates maps and wildfire risk ratings for specific locations

Risk Reduction Planner

  • Tailored for use by professional planners, natural resource agencies and researchers
  • Generates maps and detailed risk summary reports that include:
    • Risk statistics for defined project areas
    • Maps, charts, tables, photos and text that describe project areas
  • Can be used to download data

Stay tuned! There are other applications in development that will be hosted in the Colorado Forest Atlas, including a 2020 Forest Action Plan app, a tracking and reporting app, and a Cohesive Strategy app. We will update this webpage with descriptions of these apps when they become available.

Please visit the Support Page of the Colorado Forest Atlas to access user manuals and reports for the applications, and to contact the Help Desk.
